Welcome home: The Carter is ready

“The Carter” made a grand debut in 2012.

With elegant arches, towering buff brick facades and Southwest Art Deco flair, Amon G. Carter Stadium is TCU’s newest masterpiece.
It is a tribute to university pioneers and city benefactors. A dignified landmark for Fort Worth. A monument to what can be
accomplished. And while it is as much historical site as sporting venue, the university’s most recognized structure is, above all else, a home.
And it feels like one — “The Carter,” the players call it.

Horned Frog greats, old and new, are honored in its concourses. Alumni, fans and students are treated to classy accoutrements and generous sight lines. Donors, suite   holders and their guests are ensconced in luxurious amenities.

It’s all by design.

The $164 million makeover is to be celebrated and experienced. Architects used the stadium’s original plans to honor and showcase the university’s heritage, salvaging stone plaques and steel doors, Latin inscriptions and aluminum seats. More than 90 percent of the raw construction materials went back into the structure.

Then they added the latest technology and features to make it state-of-the-art.

It’s fancy and fan-friendly. Modern and majestic. We’ll enjoy it together for decades to come.
